Duke Brown Football Grain Leather - Slip-on Penny Loafer Men's Casual Shoes by Allen Edmonds

  • Rubber sole men's slip-on loafer casual shoes
  • Moc-toe beefroll penny loafers
  • Part of the Allen Edmonds Sport Collection of premium men's shoes
  • Unlined football grain leather upper with contrast thread
  • Vibram mini-lug sole
  • Handsewn construction (learn about our 212 steps of Craftsmanship)
  • Manufactured on the Handsewn 2592 Last (learn all about lasts)
  • Made in the Dominican Republic

Horween® Leather Company, one of our oldest providers, has been making the "The Duke" football in its Chicago tannery for decades. Using the same leather they use for the classic game ball, we've designed a shoe that captures the true essence of the gridiron. Taking that brown pebble grain leather that is unmistakable to football fans, we created an unlined handsewn penny loafer. Having scored a touchdown or two in our day, we didn't overlook any detail, going so far as to use white thread to stitch the vamp, kicker, and beef roll so as to mirror the laces on a football. We also know that when game day rolls around you want footwear that's as tough as your team. That's why this style, unlike a lot of our loafers, features a Vibram® mini-lug sole that is built to handle a brisk autumn day spent on the sidelines. A first of its kind, the Duke is one shoe you'll never want to kick off.

Duke Brown Football Grain Leather Penny Loafers 3.7 5 11 11
Love these loafers Bought a pair of these because I am a big football fan, and was looking for a casual every day wear shoe. These shoes are absolutely gorgeous. As far as quality goes, the inside footbed is glued down, and isn't perfect, but I don't imagine any slipping or problems. The sole is what I'm impressed with, the lug sole hasn't worn quickly at all. If I wiped them down, you'd hardly be able to tell they've been worn. I imagine the sole on these shoes will last at least 3 years with regular wear. Beautiful shoe, definitely recommend. My father ordered a pair after trying mine on. November 15, 2013
Great idea from AE AE had a great idea with this concept for a casual shoe. I tried the shoe on at one of their stores prior to my purchase they only had a 9.5 D in stock the width was a little tight so the salesman ordered a 9.5 E. For the first week the shoes fit good. Now after 3/weeks the width loosened to the point that their hard to keep on, I'm not sure if I can even wear them now. Love their shoes, but be CAREFUL when purchasing AE shoes and allow for width break in stretching, they form to your feet. July 8, 2013
Warning do not wear for long periods Little dissappointed in these shoes. I have owned for about a month now. First, I was surprized that the inner soles did not come out of the shoe. My orthodic would have cured many of my dislikes because of the other problems. Second, I thought the Vibram soles would be great for making the shoe last, however, this addition sacrified comfort. It feels like your are balancing on a bar in the middle of the shoe and the soles are very hard due to lack of support. Third, the quality is great, but comfort is lacking in parts of the shoe. Basically if you want comfort on the top of your foot - these are great. If you want comfort in wear you stand - these are bad. For the price, I would think the whole shoe would have been better.

Great casual loafer - football grain adds a cool twist It is hard to find 7.5E shoes, and I love that Allen Edmonds offers essentially any size. It is as close to custom made as I can manage. The horween, full-grain pebbled football leather feels great, seems extremely durable, and is a fun casual look. These are perfect for causal Fridays and weekends. This seems like a perfectly reasonable price for a well-made, full-grain leather loafer. I strongly recommend this shoe. May 9, 2013

No, the Duke loafer features Horween® Football Grain leather which is the same leather used for the classic ball used in official football games.

Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

Both the Nashua and the Maxfield are constructed on the Handsewn 114-Last which features a slightly shorter vamp with a more rounded toe. The Duke is manufactured on the Handsewn 2592-Last which is has a rounder toe, so when compared to the 114-Last, it may feel fuller fitting depending on the contours of one’s feet.

Typically the same size and last can be ordered in all of our shoes. However, each style can fit differently based on individual foot shape. The best way to get a proper fit is to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores. If this is not possible, keep in mind that products purchased on allenedmonds.com may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused and accompanied by the packing slip. Trying the shoes on a carpeted surface will help prevent scuffing on the sole and keep the shoe in returnable condition.
